“Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit — the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being” — Greg Anderson (USA), author of ‘The 22 Non-Negotiable Laws of Wellness’.

My approach to wellness as an Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist is to consider the biopsychosocial1 factors that may be influencing a patient’s physical state. This offers a much wider framework in which to look at the underlying issues which may be contributing to symptoms. I can then devise a treatment programme which is as individual as every patient.  

At Complete Balance there is never a ‘one size fits all’ approach to treatment because each one of us is utterly unique: physically, mentally and emotionally. 

 

The marvellously complex structure that is the human body is a design exclusive to every single person. Our genes and family history add their own variations to the physical blueprint of bones, muscles, fascia (connective tissue), ligaments, tendons and organs. Mentally and emotionally, every thought and feeling, along with the sum of every emotional experience, (both positive and negative) add to our uniqueness. 

What’s common to us all is that everything is interconnected and interdependent; in such a complex system it’s easy for one small element to become out of balance, creating a ripple effect. Physical imbalances cause pain and discomfort, while mental and emotional stress can produce a number of seemingly unconnected physical symptoms throughout the body. 

My holistic approach to wellness acknowledges the whole, unique body in conjunction with the physical, mental and emotional strains it undergoes. My goal for every patient is to ease pain, reduce tension and promote physical, mental and emotional wellbeing: a state of complete balance.


Although complete balance is the ideal state for every person, it can be hard to achieve in today’s fast-paced life. My specialism is in pain and stress relief and more details about this may be found here.
